      1/2   lb           Cooking Apples
                         Suger to Taste
    3       oz           Demerara Sugar
      1/4   lb           Golden Syrup
    3       oz           Butter
    6       oz           SR Flour
    1       t            Ground Ginger
      1/4   ts           Ground Cloves
    1                    Egg
   :       Set the oven to 350F/Gas 4. Grease an 8 inch x
   6 inch baking tin. Peel, core and slice the apples.
   Put into a pan with a little water and sufficient
   sugar to taste. Stew gently until tender, then mash
   and cool. In a separate pan melt the syrup and butter
   and demerara sugar together gently until dissolved.
   Leave to cool. Sift the flour, ginger, and cloves into
   a bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the egg to
   the syrup mixture and beat well into the flour. Stir
   in the mashed apples and continue to beat all well
   together. Turn into the tin and cook for 30 minutes
   until firm. Leave to stand for a few minutes until
   firm. Leave to stand for a few minutes in the tin
   before turning out to cool on a wire rack; cut into
   slices. :
